Clubbies hit the City to Surf!

Tuesday, August 28th, 2018

You may have wit­nessed some Beachie train­ing over the last few months… sand hills, steps, long runs and killer pow­er ses­sions!! Well, this cul­mi­nat­ed with a group chal­leng­ing them­selves in the City to Surf that ran on Sun­day 26 August. It was great to see the Mul­laloo flag be gal­lant­ly flown with a mix of youth and adults! Some mem­bers opt­ing for the 4km, some the 12km and a few con­quer­ing some per­son­al goals of half marathon.

Some walked/ran under the Mul­laloo Club colours, some for oth­er char­i­ties… to all we say — WELL DONE, you are all AWESOME!

A shout out to Carl Mills and Mar­tyn Pigg for keep­ing the Beachies hon­est at train­ing – and brrr, some of those evenings.


First Aid Competition Training

Tuesday, August 28th, 2018
City Beach is extend­ing an invi­ta­tion to all our com­peti­tors involved or inter­est­ed in com­pet­ing in First Aid to join Katie Schutze and Chris­tine Burke (Gold open First Aid at AUSSIES)  for all, or as many of our ongo­ing week­ly train­ing ses­sions as they like. City Beach feel this is a vital step in rebuild­ing the first aid com­pe­ti­tion and com­mu­ni­ty in WA.

The First Aid WA State Cham­pi­onship is in Decem­ber 2018!

This invite is to any club mem­ber, whether they have expe­ri­ence in the first aid com­pe­ti­tion or not, and we are more than hap­py to accept mem­bers who would like to train, but are unsure if they would like to com­pete. Mem­bers are not required to attend train­ing in age-group pairs, although this would cer­tain­ly be help­ful if they intend to com­pete.

Train­ing will be every Mon­day in Sep­tem­ber from 6–8 pm at our clu­b­rooms at City Beach. From Octo­ber onward, train­ing will switch to Wednes­day evenings 5:30–7:30pm. Our train­ing ses­sions are gen­er­al­ly casu­al and semi-struc­tured, with plen­ty of peer coach­ing.

I am hap­py to clar­i­fy fur­ther details for any­one want­i­ng to know more about the first aid com­pe­ti­tion or our train­ing ses­sions. Please feel free to pass on my con­tact details if need­ed. I look for­ward to (hope­ful­ly!) wel­com­ing some Mul­laloo mem­bers to train­ing!

Should you require an addi­tion­al infor­ma­tion please email Katie Schutze or phone 0413 389 490.

The Ace has been chased!

Wednesday, August 15th, 2018

A hefty $7,500 jack­pot from our Chase the Ace raf­fle has been won by our Club mem­ber SHIV!

It was stand­ing room only last Fri­day night at the Club. With every­one set to see cards turned over for the absolute final day of the Chase, the first card turned for the night had the crowd cheer… of course as there was still a chance that they could be a win­ner. As the next card turned, the ques­tion from Chase the Ace coor­di­na­tor Car­lo Tenaglia asked … “Is it the Ace” as he showed the crowd the card Shiv picked – and so it went! Shiv was all smiles and close friends cheered!!!!

Yes, we did hear the rest of the crowd moan with a moment of defeat. But all cheered to Ace Chas­er jack­pot win­ner, Shiv, who also took home some meat for din­ner!

Thanks to all the raf­fle tick­et sell­er helpers through­out this Chase, the Club appre­ci­ates your efforts in this Fundrais­er.

The Chase the Ace will have a small break and hope­ful­ly be up and run­ning again.

From Ocean Surf to Avon Rapids

Thursday, August 9th, 2018

Sev­er­al mem­bers braved the flow­ing con­di­tions of the Avon Descent over the week­end of 4–5 August, trad­ing their surf skills for the riv­er rapids. We believe the riv­er did not dis­ap­point… well, con­di­tion wise. As for some craft, per­haps not fair­ing as well!

wesTop effort from first timer Wes Gould who took out the Sin­gle Open Ski event in a time of 08:35:09. An out­stand­ing achieve­ment amongst some very tal­ent­ed pad­dlers. Wes has been train­ing for some months now and had sup­port from Glenn Eldon who Wes says he “would not have even got to the start line with­out”. Wes had a great sup­port crew with the both his own fam­i­ly and the Eldon fam­i­ly, keep­ing him on track. Wes also thanks Finn Kayaks for sup­ply­ing the ski that he trained and raced in.

troyTroy Baird, Paul Brier­ley and Tim Buy­tels who have been spot­ted many morn­ings brav­ing the chill in Hillarys mari­na in prepa­ra­tion for the Avon were at the ready for the Avon. Troy teamed up with his mate Brad and in a time of 9.14.56 came 7th over­all in the Team of 2 divi­sion – Craft not so for­tu­nate and suf­fered heav­i­ly, not sure if the gaffa tape was the heavy bit though! Paul had a tough run in the Sin­gle Marathon Kayak divi­sion a top first day effort but it seems the rapids got the bet­ter of him in the 2nd day. Tim had a hard slog in the Sin­gle Spec Ski divi­sion at a time of 11.51.46 but man­aged 3rd place for his effort!

bubbleBub­ble Wrap – 160s male surf boat crew of Stu­art Clarke, Carl Priest­ly, Mar­tin Fisk, Edgar Coel­lo and swept by Steve Part – the gents came 2nd in the inau­gur­al 15km Avon Surf Craft Chal­lenge – liken­ing the effort up stream at 57mins to an uphill chal­lenge, giv­en it took them only 33mins to return (7.5km one way and then back)! Well done.

Bali Education Tour 2018

Wednesday, August 8th, 2018

Bali trainingMem­bers of Mul­laloo Surf Life Sav­ing Club have been sup­port­ing Badung Bal­aw­ista (our sis­ter Bali Surf Life Sav­ing Club) by assist­ing in train­ing Life Guards to be employed in hotels and resorts, tourist attrac­tions, and on the beach­es through­out Indone­sia since 1998.

Mul­laloo SLSC has once again decid­ed to sup­port this ini­tia­tive for a fourth year by send­ing a team to Bali for the 2018 Bali train­ing pro­gram to be con­duct­ed over the peri­od 19–29 Octo­ber 2018.

We are now seek­ing expres­sions of inter­est from Mul­laloo SLSC mem­bers to attend the tour. This is an excel­lent oppor­tu­ni­ty to devel­op your train­ing skills in a chal­leng­ing, yet extreme­ly reward­ing envi­ron­ment. Plus, you get to hol­i­day in Bali!!

The only pre­req­ui­sites to be con­sid­ered for the tour are Bronze Medal­lion, to be a min­i­mum of 18 years of age, and to have an inter­est in train­ing. Pref­er­ence will be giv­en to mem­bers who have demon­strat­ed an inter­est in edu­ca­tion roles with­in the club such as train­ing train­ers and/or asses­sors, or those who have assist­ed in train­ing edu­ca­tion squads at the club.

Please for­ward your expres­sion of inter­est to David Rossow
